If you have never heard of Kubatana Camp, then you won’t know much about Gorongosa National Park either. Here, diverse habitats support a variety of game: oribi, reedbuck, waterbuck, warthog and sable. After the civil war, there are a few lion prides within the Park as well as elephant herds. Huge herds of zebra and groups of baboons love the open plains while herbivore numbers are rising and the river hosts species like hippos and crocodiles.
The best way to see Kubatana Camp, is to combine a holiday here with an island holiday at Ibo Island Lodge in the Quirimbas Archipelago. This eco-friendly safari camp is intimate and rustic with only six tents spread out along the Mussicadzi River in Gorongosa National Park. You can still get back to nature in this luxurious camp – the best of both worlds!
Spend four nights in Gorongosa at Kubatana and then head to Ibo Island Lodge for the last three nights. In the Mozambique bush you will camp under lush fever trees with en-suite bathrooms, traditional outside bucket showers and pure privacy.
You will enjoy game drives to see wonderful wildlife (day or night), off road driving, cultural visits, bird watching, walking safaris, hiking to Mount Gorongosa and cultural experiences. You can also stay one night in a fly camp deep in the African Bushveld. You walk there, enjoy the camp out with delicious foods and drinks – and walk back!
Kubatana has rights to more than 15 000 hectares of wilderness as well as unlimited access to a much larger 55 000 hectares – see more than ever expected! Then, when you head back to Ibo Island Lodge where the sea and sun reign supreme, where you will be immersed in the complex culture of an eclectic nation. And the comfort of sundowners on a stunning terrace or swims off a picturesque tidal sand bar.
